A New Sounds Live co-presentation hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer
Piano trio Longleash joins pianist/composer Rachel Grimes, a member of the seminal ensemble Rachel’s, for a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the group’s utterly transporting album “Music for Egon Schiele” (Quarterstick / Touch & Go) – originally composed by Grimes for a dance and theater production about the fascinating and tragically brief life of the Austrian painter. Longleash will perform the newly published suite, giving this beautiful music new life for a new ensemble. Grimes will join the trio for arrangements of pieces from her 2015 album “The Clearing” (Temporary Residence) and the world premiere of her two-piano work “And Today Was Her Birthday.”
